The beginning...
It was 2004 in my hometown of Narpala in Anantapur (Andhra Pradesh). Senior boys would always be playing volleyball. My school Physical Education teacher began to encourage me due to my height when I was in class X in 2004. In 2008, I got a chance to join the Sports Hostel in Visakhapatnam. After being coached there for six months, I got picked for the Youth Asian Championship in Malaysia where we won silver.
Turning point...
That would be the Youth Asian Championship in Malaysia in 2008, my first in National colours, we won bronze.
Biggest influence...
My coaches at every step have shaped my career. Noted player-turned-coach A Ramana Rao especially has had a big hand.
Gold in Senior Nationals in 2013 & 2014, National Games gold in 2015, represented India in the Olympic Beach Volleyball Qualification tournament in 2015 and the Junior Asian Championship in Iran in 2008.
Most memorable moment...
That would be beating Pakistan during the Olympic Beach Volleyball Qualification tournament in Maldives in 2015.
On Pro Volleyball League...
It provides a big boost to Indian players both financially as well as international exposure as we get to play with and against world class overseas players (two foreign players in each franchise). PVL has the potential to take the game to the next level in the country.
